Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a noninvasive and mostly painless treatment for urinary incontinence as well as other women’s health conditions such as
vaginal drynessand
post-natal rehabilitation.

If you’ve heard of the
vampire facial– made famous by
Kim Kardashian, you probably know that the viral aesthetic treatment uses PRP as an attempt to rejuvenate the skin.

Similarly, the PRP treatment can also be used to rejuvenate the sensations in both the clitoris and G-Spot by extracting PRP from a woman’s own blood and injecting it directly into the vulva.

While the thought of having an injection in your intimate area might sound daunting, this is actually a mostly painless procedure, unlike the vampire facial.

What is the PRP procedure like?

First, your blood is taken from your vein just like how blood is drawn from your arm at a regular doctor’s visit.

The blood is then placed in a centrifuge at high speed to separate the platelet-rich plasma – which is a yellowish transparent liquid that we call “liquid gold”.

Once injected into the desired region of your body, the milieu of growth factors in the liquid gold has the capability to encourage the growth of new cells and tissues, as well as allow for the formation of more collagen, new blood
vessels and new supportive matrix.

Does PRP really work?

PRP has been used clinically for a long time, especially in the field of orthopaedics to treat tendon and muscular issues.

Several clinical studieshave seen promising results of PRP in the field of gynaecology, on conditions such as:

  • Female Sexual Dysfunction

  • Stress Urinary Incontinence

  • Vaginal Dryness

  • Lichen Sclerosus

  • Post-Natal Rehabilitation

Why is PRP good for managing urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence, particularly Stress Urinary Incontinence, can be infuriating to treat. Currently, the only non-invasive treatment options available are pelvic floor physiotherapy, kegel exercises or in the worst-case scenario –
simply accepting the condition as part of ageing process.

Even though it is not yet approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the United States,PRP studieshave shown
growing numbers of success rates at diminishing the symptoms of early stage urinary incontinence. Most importantly, PRP is noninvasive – in other words, it does not require surgery.

Many of us have been conditioned to believe that small amounts of urinary leakage that comes with coughing, laughing, sneezing or exercising are normal after pregnancy and childbirth, or with ageing.

Early urinary incontinence should NOT be accepted as normal and it’s not going to be resolved on its own unless intervention is made with noninvasive treatments such as PRP and
vaginal lasers, or regular physiotherapy.

Surgery is often not warranted unless the urinary incontinence is severe.

What else can PRP be used for?

It can also be used to increase sexual pleasure. Sexual pleasure can be lost because of ageing, hormonal imbalances, psychosocial factors or vulvovaginal damages following pregnancy and childbirth

Many factors lead to reduced sexual pleasure, including:

– Lack of lubrication
– Pain
– Reduced desire
– Difficulty to get aroused
– Inability or difficulty to reach orgasm.

In these cases, PRP can be injected around the external vulva and into the internal wall of the vaginal canal to stimulate hydration, hence reducing dryness.

A small quantity of PRP, about 0.1ml, can also be injected just underneath the clitoris to stimulate the growth and engorgement of the clitoris, making it more accessible and increasing its sensitivity to tactile stimulation.
